BlogHer 'On the Edge' Reacts to Nevada School Shooting

BlogHer Original Post

Not another school shooting. This one was at a middle school, killing teacher and Afghanistan war veteran Michael Landsberry, and wounding two 12-year old students. The most disturbing part: the shooter was a student at that school, too. One of our BlogHer Publishing Network Members, Susan from On the Edge, has been following this story especially closely -- because she used to work at Sparks Middle School near Reno, Nevada, where the tragedy happened. Soon after the news broke, Susan wrote:

The shooting started just as classes began this morning.

I knew a lot of the people who still work there.

This is just devastating to hear.
